  • Latex Balloons & Balloon Fillers – The Lesser Known Facts

    Latex Balloon Fillers Latex Balloon Fillers

    Balloons are exciting, aren’t they? They pop, they fly & they cheer you up. Balloons are probably the only thing that still rules the decoration industry since 1824. However old you grow, the popping sound of a balloon is sure to startle you.

    The advancements in technology evolved a variety of balloon types from the plane, single-colored ones to colorful & printed pieces. Inventors also brought in balloon fillers to the market for ease and convenience of users. The creative designers introduced amazing printed patterns into balloons and brainstormed new ideas for the modern buyers.

    Some interesting facts

    • Balloons were invented in the New England during the Great Depression
    • Latex balloons are a product of rubber trees. Latex harvesting doesn’t hurt trees as it is collected in a cup by cutting the tree’s bark
    • They are 100% plastic-free
    • The rate at which a latex balloon degrades is the same as a leaf from an oak tree (under similar environmental conditions)
    • Latex balloons care for Mother Earth as rubber trees grow in rain forests and a single tree can produce latex for up to 40 long years!
    • The speed of sound in rubber is much higher than that in the air. This creates a sonic boom when a hole is made in an inflated balloon
    • Balloons filled with helium float as helium weighs lighter than nitrogen & oxygen

    What are latex balloon inflators & why are they required?

    Humans can easily blow balloons. You will be surprised to know that inflating balloons is a very good exercise for your cheek muscles and is also recommended by physiotherapists to treat cases of facial paralysis.

    Are you wondering that if one can easily inflate a balloon, why are mechanical inflators even required? It is because balloons are used extensively for every possible occasion – small or big and it is practically impossible to blow them up. Inflators make it easy to inflate a huge quantity of balloons and make them equally sized too. Hand tight connections, pressure regulators, contents gauges, string cutters and cut-off function are some features you must look into before purchasing balloon fillers.

    One latex balloon inflator is enough for all the functions and parties at your home. If you are planning a bigger event, you may obviously require more numbers. JTC Valves Sales have a good variety of economically priced latex balloon fillers for you. Contact our experts for suggestions as to which model is the best for you. They will definitely guide you to choose the one which makes a good long-term investment.

  • All That You Should Know About Gas Cylinder Valves

    All That You Should Know About Gas Cylinder Valves

    Cylinder Valves Cylinder Valves

    Gases constantly seek ways to escape from or enter into a gas supply system. Cylinder valves are devices that control the flow of the gases into or out of the cylinder. Pertaining to the escaping nature of gases, cylinder valves are gaining importance like never before.

    What are the types available?

    Packed Valves – These valves are mostly found on acetylene cylinders (B & MC) and corrosive products such as ammonia or chlorine. They typically have a specially designed wrench which has to be removed during shipping & storage.

    Pressure-seal Valves – This is a common valve found on most of the cylinders and can be operated using a hand-wheel at very high pressure levels.

    Diaphragm Valves – You can find these valves on cylinders which demand high levels of protection against leakage such as cylinders containing gas mixtures, high purity gases and rare gases such as krypton and xenon.

    Post-type Medical Valves – These pin-indexed valves are used in some medical gas products to ensure supply of the right gas to a particular apparatus.

  • Draft Beer Equipments, Tap Beer Regulators Are Most Crucial!

    The winter is at the fag end, very soon we will be facing the dreaded summer of USA and find solace in tap beer. Why not brew your own beer and party with family/friends when you feel like? Brewing beer is not as complicated as it sound, especially if you have the right equipment. A brief about the beer brewing set to quench your thirst!

    Tap handle : It is also called as the faucet handle, the lever when pulled forward pours the beer is screwed into the draft beer faucet

    Draft beer faucet : it is the tap from which the beer is dispensed. There are different qualities of draft beer faucets available with different features

    Shank : This part connects the beer line to the faucet. It is usually a chrome plated brass tube

    Beer line: A piece of food grade plastic tubing, which connects the rear end of the shank to the keg coupler

    Keg coupler: The keg coupler is attached to the flange atop the keg to let the gas in

    Air line: Is a food grade tubing that connects the regulator to the coupler for air flow that helps in dispensing the beer

    Regulator: The regulator connects the beer dispenser parts to the CO2 or nitrogen tank, which ensures that the brew is dispensed at the correct pressure and lets you know how much gas is remaining in the tank for dispensing efficiency.

    Why the regulator is crucial for beer brewing?

    The amount of gas dispensed into the beer determines the taste and stability of the draught beer. Different beers require different gases to be blended to develop the flavor for that beer. A nitrogen beer like Guinness will have a lesser percentage of carbon dioxide and more of nitrogen. Different pressures are required to dispense the different kinds of beers. A higher pressure is required for stout beer to acquire a creamy, cascading froth. The right blend of CO1 and nitrogen applied at the correct pressure will give a high quality beer that tastes great.

    Types Of Tap Beer Regulators:

    To serve a great tasting beer, use beer tap gas regulators available at JTC Valve Sales. Each regulator, manufactured by Taprite, used for beer and beverage dispensing is designed to provide maximum gas flow, to operate at ranges as required and tested in accordance with UL standard 252 and UL252A.

  • An Insight Into Industrial Gas Valves

    Industrial Gas Valves Industrial Gas Valves

    Valves are devices that control the flow of liquids or gases in a system. Valves used in almost all industries ranging from farming, water, chemical, food and beverage industries. We never bother to give a thought to valves though they are a crucial part for the successful and safe running of any system.

    How are valves made?

    Valves have many parts which are made of plastic or metal. The outer part is usually made of metal and is called the seat. This is usually a solid outer casing which seats an inner soft seal made of plastic or rubber which ensures tight closure of the valve. The body is that part of the valve which opens or closes the valve and snugly fits in the seat when closed. The opening and closing of the valve is a mechanical movement which is controlled by a lever, handwheel, faucet or an automated mechanism.

    What material is used to make valves?

    The Valve body is generally constructed from bronze, brass, iron, stainless steel or plastic. The valve may be made from one material or a combination of materials. The trim that is exposed to the flow media is made from material that is resistant to the corrosion due to the flow media.

    Classification of valves

    Valves can be classified as per their design and functions. They can also be classified as per the material that is used for construction, the end connection or the temperature-pressure rating. The valve is stated by the NPS (nominal pipe size) which must match the NPS of the line in which it is to be connected.

    Every material has a pressure limit and temperature limit according to which various valves are designed for various purposes. If the valve is exposed to pressure or temperature that exceeds the limit specified in the manual, the valve will not function efficiently.

    Working of safety valves

    Valves are used in systems that contain flammable liquids, toxic chemicals, high pressure steam, compressed air or such contents that cannot be allowed to escape. Valves are controlled manually or automatically. A closed valve should not let any liquid or gas escape or flow through once it is closed. Pressure builds up in the container due to change in temperature, movement or storage. Any increase in pressure may lead to the catastrophic bursting of the container/cylinder which causes loss of life and property. A safety valve that is used in these systems, automatically opens to release the pressure inside the container thereby prevent explosion.

    Valves and safety valves are integral for the safe and reliable working of any system. JTC valve sales is the leading stockist for best quality industrial gas valves that are manufactured by Sherwood and Rego. The different types of valves are:

    • 1206A Series, Ammonia Valves
